Moen Smart Shower

What is in a smart home?

A house is considered a smart home if it has digital home devices that are controlled wirelessly with a mobile app or smart assistant, like an Alexa or Google Home smart speaker. By creating a network of connected devices throughout your home, you can automate your everyday routines to make your day-to-day life easier. But it’s not just about convenience — smart home tech can save you time, give you peace of mind, and even enhance your comfort and relaxation.

The Moen Smart Shower is just one example of a smart device designed to improve your relaxation. The Smart Shower allows you to control your shower with a smart speaker, the Moen Smart Water App or the digital controller, so you can start your shower at the exact temperature you want from anywhere in your home. And with countless ways to customize, you can personalize your experience to enjoy the perfect shower every time.

What are examples of smart homes?

With hundreds of smart devices to choose from and endless ways to personalize your experience, no two smart homes look the same. Currently, the five most popular smart products for homeowners are video doorbells, smart thermostats, smart TVs, smart lighting and virtual assistants.

But with approximately 40% of homeowners experiencing water damage, water monitoring and water security are growing priorities. “The whole home approach to protecting and monitoring essential infrastructure in a house is a key part of the possible future of the smart home,” said Jennifer Pattison Tuohy from The Verge at the 2022 Consumer Electronic Show (CES).

With the Moen Smart Water Network, you can simplify your life and enjoy peace of mind by connecting with the water in your home. Our Smart Water Network products make your everyday tasks more convenient, elevate your relaxation, and protect your home and everything in it from leaks and flooding. And with the Moen Smart Water App, you can seamlessly control the water in your house from the palm of your hand.

The Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff continuously tracks the flow rate, pressure and temperature of your home’s water while monitoring for leaks. If a leak or abnormality is detected, it will alert you in real time so you can address the issue and even shut your water off automatically to protect your home from catastrophic water damage. The Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff also helps you save on your water bill by tracking your water usage and setting conservation goals.

The Smart Sump Pump Monitor gives your home another layer of protection by turning your existing sump pump into a smart system so you can track water levels and performance 24/7. If the monitor detects a leak, extreme temperatures or humidity, you’ll receive alerts in real time so you can protect your home from a sump pump failure or flooding.

What are the dangers of smart homes?

Home control devices make your life more convenient by giving you the power to customize and control your smart home, but homeowners are often concerned about privacy and security, especially when it comes to passwords and data.

Smartphone and app companies update their software and operating systems frequently to improve performance, fix bugs and make security patches, and it’s important to always have the most up-to-date software on your devices to keep your home running safely and smoothly. Using strong passwords and two-factor authentication can also keep your accounts more secure.

Smart Leak Detector

How can I make my house a smart house?

Turning your house into a smart home doesn’t require a total transformation, or even a big investment. Starting with something as simple as a Smart Leak Detector is any easy way to dip your toes into the smart home experience.

You can install a Smart Leak Detector anywhere throughout your home, like your basement, laundry room or near your dishwasher, to help detect leaks and moisture where it shouldn’t be. Whenever your detector senses a leak, you’ll receive an alert through the Moen Smart Water App or a text, phone call or email so you can help protect your home from water damage.

Before you start building your smart home ecosystem, it's also helpful to choose a smart home system — like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant or Apple HomeKit — that you’ll use to connect to your devices. Not all systems are created equal, so make sure you find a system that integrates with all of your devices so you can keep your home running smoothly.

Adding a Smart Faucet with voice control to your family’s kitchen is another easy way to integrate smart home tech into your house.

What is a smart faucet?

A smart faucet is an electronic or battery powered kitchen faucet that you can control with an app, touchless features or even your voice. Smart faucets have all the traits of a traditional kitchen faucet, like handles and pulldown spray heads, but with added features so you never miss a beat in your kitchen.

While you’re cooking or entertaining, a smart faucet like the Moen Smart Faucet is an extra helping hand with controls that make it easier to precisely measure and control the temperature of your water.

What does a smart kitchen faucet do?

A smart faucet can simplify your family’s life by streamlining the things you do every day, and with the Moen Smart Faucet, you have the power to control your faucet in four unique ways.

If your hands are messy or full, you can use voice assistance with your smart speaker to turn your faucet on and off or dispense the exact amount and temperature of water that you need. Wave Sensors make it easy to turn your faucet on and off with a wave of your hand, and you can even use the Moen Smart Water App to create customized presets to simplify all of your everyday tasks, like filling the coffee pot and watering your plants.

And if you’d like more hands-on control over your water flow and temperature, the handle is always there when you need it. Plus, the Smart Faucet is easy to install on your own — no plumber or electrician needed.

The Moen Smart Faucet with Motion Control is the next generation of our award-winning Smart Faucet with a touchless sensor so powerful; you can control the water flow and temperature with simple hand motions for a completely touchless experience. “Smart home technology is everywhere these days,” said Dan Cohen of Gear Diary, “and Moen is making it clear that they are the leaders in smart water technology.”
